Hot off the presses, so to speak, here are the latest mock drafts from Todd McShay and Mel Kiper:

McSHAY'S TOP NINE

1. Chiefs -- Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah

2. Jaguars -- Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State

3. Raiders -- Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

4. Eagles -- Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

5. Lions -- Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon

6. Browns -- Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU

7. Cards -- Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

8. Bills -- Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

9. Jets -- Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia

McShay's take: The Jets have one of the most depleted rosters in the NFL right now, but they're not going to find an answer to their quarterback problem in this scenario. That means finding a competent right tackle, a young pass-rusher (Calvin Pace likely to be cut) are at the top of the priority list. Jones would fit the bill as a pass-rusher. He's versatile, closes quickly and looks to jar the ball loose when he gets to quarterbacks or ball carriers.

KIPER'S TOP NINE

1. Chiefs -- Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

2. Jaguars -- Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M

3. Raiders -- Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah

4. Eagles -- Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

5. Lions -- Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia

6. Browns -- Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State

7. Cards -- Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

8. Bills -- Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia

9. Jets -- Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon

Kiper's take: Yes, they really need skill position upgrades, with wide receiver, tight end and running back all areas of need. But the value is an issue, so if the Jets don't trade down, they're better served going with the best player available at another position of need. I'm a big fan of the interior, with Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples in place, but the Jets could really use an edge rusher. Jordan is light, but he has long arms, great athleticism and I think can be a guy they don't need to shuttle in and out depending on downs and matchups. He has star potential, and the pass rush gets some help.
